You don’t have to count the days to the election, anymore: no you can count the hours. People sick of flyer-stuffed mailboxes and prerecorded phone pitches say “Thank God.”  TV, radio, and newspaper sales departments would beg to disagree.

Who will win their races? Enter your Fearless Election Predictions, in Comments, below.  Unfortunately, because of my job, I am precluded from offering my own picks. But I will tell you this: they all will turn out to be correct.

Jerry Brown vs. Meg Whitman. You’ve seen the polls. What did Nannygate do for her? Why is Brown lying low these last few days? (Hours- Ed.)

Sen. Barbara Boxer vs. Carly Fiorina. Any surprises there?

Proposition 19, legalizing marijuana. For a while, it looked like it might actually pass. But not the last few weeks. Still a chance?  Plus, weigh in on the national front, the ‘referendum on the President,’ or any other elections of note (Nevada, anyone?).

Remember: add your Comments, below. Then, right after the election, point out how smart you were. Since you can do it anonymously, no one will know otherwise….

    All I can say is I’m glad it will soon be over. Annoying phone calls will stop and my letter carrier will once more be able to walk upright. The amount of trash I put out each week will be reduced by 50%.

    It’s a shame our state is mired is petty political infighting, the rule of the “Big 5” on budget matters and has a legislature that produces an awful lot of “puppy poop” they try and pass for legislation in an effort to micro-manage the state. I know, I read it all. Our ‘representatives’ do not represent us any more, they are puppets of their respective parties and bought and paid for by special interests. “Constitutional Officers” are individuals that start feeding at the public trough and as term limits apply, move on to another office.

    I’m a middle of the road independent. I have on one to vote FOR, I can just vote against the lesser of two evils, keep my head down and go about my business, frequently re-reading the Federalist Papers and wondering “what happened?”

    Here’s where I believe Meg went wrong:

    1) She’s using her maiden name rather than her married name (Harsh). Bear with me on this…..

    2) If elected, as a woman, she could quite legitimately use the title “Governess”. So….

    She should have ran a campaign along the lines of “As Governess Harsh, I WILL punish legislators who fail to deliver an on-time budget”. Slogan: “Meg 2010 – A New, More Disciplined California”. Would it have worked? Maybe not, but it would certainly have been more interesting……
